The first 200 words of this essay...
This problem has many broad issues including:
* Was it lawful for Dick to be detained by the bouncers?
* Was the arrest by the police lawful?
* Should the admissibility of the confession be allowed?
* Was the refusal of bail legitimate?
* Was the period in which Dick was kept in remand legal?
* Was the judge's summary to the jury was lawful?
Dick was detained by the bouncers on trying to leave the bar, while waiting on the police to arrive. Occasionally private citizens, in this case the bouncers, are 'obliged to' make a summary arrest1 in accordance with the powers of arrest set out in PACE Article 26. Two conditions will need to be met in order for a valid arrest to have taken place: 1) there must be an indictable offence or reasonable suspicion of an indictable offence, 2) appropriate general conditions must apply2. The crime of which Dick is suspected, unlawful wounding, is serious enough to be considered indictable. The general arrest conditions, as set out in Art 26.5 of PACE, are met as Dick was detained by the bouncers to prevent him 'absconding'3.
